Description: USA TODAY honors outstanding college students with the All-USA Academic Teams. The top twenty students selected for the All-USA College and Community College First Teams will receive a $2,500 cash award and will receive extensive national recognition through coverage in USA TODAY and usatoday.com.

The program honors students who have not only challenged themselves and excelled in their course work, but extend their academic and broader intellectual abilities beyond the classroom to benefit their schools, their communities and society. A key element given most weight by the judges will be the student's essay describing his or her most outstanding original academic or intellectual product. The nominator (or one of the people writing a letter of recommendation) must describe the merits of the endeavor in detail and how it may benefit society. If the endeavor is a group project, the letter should describe in specific terms what the student did and any results from the student's actions.
